Russ and I stop in often. I'm not quite sure if it's because of Bob's affable personality, or the continually changing treasures. I have a sneaking suspicion- it's a bit of both.
On our most recent visit, Bob shared a true oddity--one so unusual--he wasn't quite sure what it was. We came up with a couple of guesses, but we don't know either. Here's some photos and what's know about the mysterious object.
Bob relayed this information. (You can almost imagine a spooky score accompanying this true story.) Woo ,woo ,woo.. This item came from the attic of an old women's house. She lived alone. One ordinary day, something extraordinary happened. A snake appeared in her home. Frightened, she managed to corral the serpent into the attic. She nailed the door shut; it remained boarded up until her death.
After her demise, an auction took place to sell the contents of the garret-winner take all. Bob placed a winning bid, taking all the items, this unusual contraption being among them. Who was the odd woman? What else (or who else) was in the attic? Why did she have it in her home? Many questions linger. None have answers. With your help, perhaps we can solve this mystery.
Vintage Faire is Saturday, May 10th. Russ' Old Radio Repair will be there! (Set up on the front porch of the Antique Store.) Be sure to stop by and say hi.
